Engine loses power sometimes when not warmed up, sometimes after traveling awhile

(1997 Kia Sportage)
in Carson City, NV on December 11, 2009
The engine needs to be warmed up or else it loses compression, as if it is in 2nd gear, & needs to be turned off, restarted & then it can go. Sometimes this can also happen while traveling for awhile, after letting off gas & then trying to accelerate again. Any thoughts on what this could be?
